Snap on 2&4 w/ Cord Martin

On Saturday, October 28 at 8PM, the Nashville Jazz Workshop welcomes saxophonist Cord Martin to the Jazz Cave for a special Snap on 2&4 performance.

Cord Martin has appeared on the Jazz Cave stage many times, most recently when he brought jazz greats Don Braden and Valery Pomonarev to town, and performed alongside them with a stellar local rhythm section. The combination of a visiting jazz great and a group of Nashville's finest brought down the house. This time Cord takes the stage as a leader, and is sure to bring some great music!

For this performance, Cord will be joined by John Birdsong (bass), Bryan Harrison (piano), and Wendell Henry (drums).

Cord is also a dedicated and accomplished educator. He serves as Band Director for Whitthorne Middle School in Columbia. He shares his passion for jazz and inspires an interest in jazz in his young students, and was named Middle School Teacher of the Year in Columbia.
